For the past nine years, the Brooklyn Flea was held at the high school in Fort Greene every Saturday and Sunday, but that’s now changing. Bishop Loughlin Memorial High School put in a new track in the former market space, and the flea market had to find a new home. Brooklyn Flea tried partnering with Smorgasburg, a popular food market, at East River State Park in Williamsburg, however, the two events proved to be too large for the space so the market has found another new home.
Currently, the Brooklyn Flea operates every Sunday from 10am – 6pm, April – October in Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass (DUMBO). The Brooklyn Flea in DUMBO hosts 80 vendors including many vintage sellers.
As of June 17th, Brooklyn Flea has found an additional second home in SOHO at 100 Avenue of the Americas. Brooklyn Flea’s first ever Manhattan location is open Saturdays and Sundays from 10am – 6pm and features 60 indoor vendors selling design, vintage, gift, and other eclectic finds.
